Slapper 2 surround various issues

I’m using Slapper 2.06 in Nuendo 11 but i’m noticing some issues: (Windows/vst3)

Nuendo uses SMTPE channel assignments and Slapper 2 is supposed to auto-adjust. It’s not entirely clear what is supposed to happen to LFE (passthrough or summed on the input ?)

I think it’s ok at 5.1 but lots of oddities with the 7.x.x. version ie - when you insert into a 7.1.2 track then Slapper thinks it’s 7.0.2 - and other configurations give similar incorrect configurations.


The input/output channel assignment are incorrect and inconsistent. If you set the mix to 0% or ‘bypass’ the plugin then you would expect anything sent to a specific input to come out of the equivalent output. This isn’t true for LFE which seems to be summed to the L channel ? - and the Ls gives similar odd results…as does the height channels. Very easy to repro.

I’m seeing other oddities too but these two are the showstoppers - the second one especially as it means you will get ‘random’ results when the mix is set to anything other than 100%.

The incorrect channel assignment can be worked around with some messy rerouting plugins but it would be good to see this fixed.

I’ve just noticed the same issues. I’m on windows and Nuendo as well. Is there any way to fix that?

I believe some fixes are on the way :slight_smile:

Yes, we have a beta version which fixes this, but it’s kinda tangled up with the apple silicon rebuild. Still waiting on iLok to support M1 chips before we ca release it.
